One does not understand the logic of conferring honorary doctorates to individuals. That too some of these doctorates are given to people who have not even completed Bachelor levels. A doctorate is such a challenging thing to complete (provided one does it properly) and to see one get it so easily is such a pain.
So thank you so much Rahul Dravid for not accepting the honorary doctorate offer by Bangalore University. A double thanks saying you would rather get a doctorate by doing research in sports. Atleast you appreciated the efforts by the doctoral students! Though, it will be amazing if you did some research in sports studies. Who better than you?
The respect for this individual keeps rising for he never seizes to amaze you with his simplicity and humility. There are others and there is Rahul Dravid.
